That was a brilliant performance from PV Sindhu. She never faltered and never conceded a big lead. The anticipation skills were spot on and so was the attack. 

And with that, she becomes the first Indian shuttler this year to reach the last-eight at the French Open. After Saina's exit earlier in the day, this has surely brought a smile back on Indian fans' faces.
